Publisher's summary Edit

Original Spanish Edit

El mundo le conoce como el buscador de reliquias más intrépido y carismático de todos los tiempos. Todos hemos sido testigos de sus extraordinarias aventuras en busca del Arca de la Alanza o el Santo Grial. Pero, más allá de sus increíbles logros, algunos detalles de la apasionante vida de Indiana Jones permanecían en secreto, o eran sabidos por muy pocos, hasta el día de hoy. La trágica muerte de su madre siendo aún niño, su inolvidable experiencia en un campo de concetración alamán durante la Primera Guerra Mundial, la pérdida de su joven esposa con solo veintiséis años, sus arriesgados viajes en busca del Arca de Noé o de la mismísima civilización perdida de la Atlántida... Momentos únicos que también contribuyeron a forjar la personalidad del héroe contemporáneo por antonomasia. Mediante esta biografía, y a través de los ojos de su inseparable amigo Marcus Brody, el lector podrá ser testigo de los diferentes episodios que marcaron para siempre la existencia de un tranquilo profesor de arqueología capaz de alcanzar la condición de mito armándose con un látigo y luciendo su viejo sombrero. El resto, es leyenda... Y la leyenda vivirá para siempre en cada una de las páginas de este libro

English translation Edit

He is remembered throughout the world as an intrepid and charismatic finder of relics. We all have been witness to his extraordinary adventures in search of the Ark of the Covenant and the Holy Grail. But, beyond the incredible artifacts, some details of the exciting life of Indiana Jones remained private, or were known by very few, until today. The tragic death of his mother when he was still a child, his unforgettable experience in a concentration camp during World War I, the loss of his young wife at age twenty-six, his dangerous trips in search of the Ark of Noah and the lost civilization of the Atlantis... Unique moments that together forged the personality of this contemporary hero. By means of this biography, and through the eyes of his inseparable friend Marcus Brody, the reader can experience the various episodes that transformed a calm professor of archeology into a mythic character armed with a whip and donning a well-worn hat. The rest is legend... And the legend will always live on in the pages of this book.

Plot summary Edit

The book is presented as being penned by Marcus Brody in 1948, and the postscript is attributed to Indy himself circa 1993. Though not endorsed by Lucasfilm, Biografía summarizes nearly all of the official Indy canon, including

The original French-language stories (e.g. the Bagheera comics and the Hachette youth novels) are conspicuously absent from the list of sources, as is the fourth theatrical film.

In his efforts to fill in the gaps between the various adventures, Gomez occasionally missteps. For example, Indy's affair with Marion Ravenwood is described as occurring in 1925, before Indy's marriage to Deirdre Campbell; the official timeline (according to IndianaJones.com) sets the affair in 1926, after Deirdre's death.
